Old Friends

Happy Saturday, y’all!

I started off my weekend right by meeting up with some old friends for pizza. Really, really good pizza.

We met at Posto in Somerville – I’ve been hearing good things and wanted to give their brick oven pizza a try. It did not disappoint! I got the Campania, which included Brie, fior di latte, rosemary ham, rosemary roasted apples, vincotto, and arugula. I chose this pizza right away when I saw the roasted apples but they really weren’t the best part. If I were roasted apples, I would slice them much more thinly so that they could take on a crispy quality. These were fat and a bit smushy. I guess I’ll just have to make my own at home =)

The dough, though. Oohhhh, the dough. Exactly how pizza dough should be. Thin, thin bottom crust where all of the toppings rest and then a thick, chewy crust that you really have to work to eat to finish things off on the edge. And such great flavor. I hate describing bread as yeasty but, well…that’s what it was.

Embrace the yeast. It’s wonderous.

I’m not really sure why Italian restaurants in the states insist on calling mozarella “fior di latte”. Yeah, it distinguishes it from mozzarella di bufala but Americans don’t really have that issue. We assume it’s good old familiar mozz unless you tell us otherwise. Restaurants just putting on their fancy pants, I guess =)

I woke up this morning with the need for a good run rushing through my bones. The rain wasn’t going to stop me! After a very muddy 5 miles, I was famished and threw together this souped-up breakfast sammie:

A toasted whole spelt English muffin with sauteed kale, a poked over-easy egg, and a tablespoon of tomato sauce.

I sauteed the kale in a bit of Garlic Gold olive oil and a tablespoon of water and sprinkled it with a bit of kosher salt and black pepper. Once it was nice and droopy but still had some structure, I cracked the egg into the pan and gently poked the yoke with a fork. After the egg had set, I folded it into itself to get the yoke a bit more cooked. This just makes for a sandwich that holds together a bit better than one with a runny, oozy egg.

I totally dig tomato sauce on eggs. Definitely the perfect finishing touch.

Half of a Navel for dessert =)

I’m heading to cupcake heaven with a friend to pick up treats for my little bro’s birthday lunch tomorrow. I promise to share when I get back!
